[ September 22nd 2004 ]
Raider Chronicles all week has been canvassing
public opinion on who should replace bee-stung
lipped beauty Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft should
Paramount Pictures commission a concluding Tomb
Raider motion picture, as is being suggested by
some factions of the movie-making industry at
present. More than 3,000 avid readers cast their
vote, and the results have proved somewhat conclusive.
46% of the public vote, 19-year-old Keira Knightley
- daughter of actor Will Knightley and playwright
Sharman Macdonald - appears to be the favourite
to don pistols and hot-pants to reprise the role
of ardent Tomb Raider Lara Croft, with 31-year-old
English rose Kate Beckinsale bringing up the rear
with a combined vote of 28%. Other more bizarre
suggestions included drag supremo Ru Paul, who
curiously racked up 2% of the vote and former
Lara Croft model Rhona Mitra, garnering 7% of
source attached to motion picture giant Paramount
recently confirmed the studio is still negotiating
a third Lara Croft-helmed movie to conclude the
trilogy originally touted by director Simon West.
Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie - who played
lead video-game heroine Lara Croft - had already
dismissed a concluding picture during an interview
in March but reiterated her decision again while
in Venice to promote DreamWorks' Shark Tale. "I
just don't feel like I need to do another one,
because I felt very happy with the last one."
readers have spoken. Is Paramount listening...?
Only time will tell.
